Reggie ARPH #13669

Reggie was born in January of 2015 - he came to our organization from a growing family that could not provide him with the attention he needs. He is fully crate-trained and house-trained, but needs continued work on leash-training.

Reggie was VERY depressed when he first came to our program - he missed his family that gave him very badly. He spent a good two weeks waiting at the front door of his foster moms house, waiting for them to come back. Though it took some time, Reggie eventually began to believe his foster mom that he was in a great place! Each day, he showed us a new page of his personality and began to bond.

He LOVES playing with other dogs, but loves children even more. He would love a home with young kids that he can pal around and bond with. He enjoys toys, romping and wrestling, and snuggling on the couch. He requires a home without any cats, but is otherwise a pretty easy-going guy. Another perk? He LOVES car-rides... so would be an excellent candidate to attend little-league sports games or go camping... you name the adventure, we are sure Reggie would be thrilled.

Don't let his "plain markings" fool you - this boy is a hidden gem with a stellar temperament and tons of love to offer. We know if someone would just take the opportunity to meet him, they would fall in love with him, too.

For more information, please contact Kim Griswold - kimgriswold@att.net

Oaklee ARPH #13728

Oaklee is located in Fort Worth, TX and it is required that you travel there to meet her in person to adopt, no exceptions. We do need the entire party to be involved when meeting available dogs, including every family member and dog(s) that currently live in your home.

Oaklee is a 3yo spayed black tri female that came to us with 2 other Aussies after their owner experienced life-altering circumstances and could no longer provide for them. She is house-trained, crate-trained, and walks well on a leash. It is unknown how Oaklee would do with a cat, but she should go to a child-free home.

As a result of limited human interaction and due to the fact she is still adjusting to her new surroundings, Oaklee is reserved and shy. However, she is slowly gaining confidence as we continue to help her overcome her fears.

She is curious and is beginning to venture out from her "safe spot" in the corner to check things out. She desires human interaction and seems to want the attention, but it is apparent in her behavior this is foreign to her.

Oaklee is a quiet dog, and so far her foster owners have not heard her bark. She loves being outdoors and enjoys walks. Oaklee's foster mom has noticed she likes to collect things and bring them back with her to her "safe spot" (socks santa hat, and a soft dog toy), however she is not destructive.

Ferdinand ARPH #13705

Ferdinand is a 10-month-old black tri male that came to us with 11 other Aussies after their breeder experienced life-altering circumstances and could no longer provide for them. He is crate-trained and working on his leash-breaking and house-breaking skills. He is not suitable for a home with children and we don't know how he does with cats at this time, but he absolutely adores other dogs and will require a home with another dog (20+ lbs) in his future home.

As a result of limited human interaction as a puppy and living in a pen his entire life before rescue, Ferdinand is extremely shy and timid. He is still very uncertain about living as a house-pet, but puts forth an admirable effort every day to accept human interaction and love. His future home will need to understand what it means to offer him space during his transition period (which can be much longer than your average dog) and have realistic expectations about his future. There is no better policy than honesty and our honest assessment is that Ferdinand needs to progress at a very slow and steady pace to feel comfortable in his own skin. To aide in his progress, we are implementing a medicinal protocol to help take the edge off his fear at the recommendation of his treating Veterinarian, and it does seem to be helping! It is likely that this regimen may benefit him long-term.

Ferdinand is still very new to the organization and we are still working with him, so please check back for updates as we get to know him more.

Paisley ARPH # 13700

Paisley is currently located in Fort Worth, TX and it is required that you travel there to meet her in person to adopt, no exceptions. We do need the entire party to be involved when meeting available dogs, including every family member and dog(s) that currently live in your home.

Paisley is an approximately 3yo lovely blue merle female that came to our organization after being found as a stray and no owner came forward to claim her. She is completely house-broken, crate-trained, and walks very well on a leash. She is not suitable for a home with cats or other small pocket-type pets.

Paisley is a perfect mixture of sweet and diva! This girl whole-heartedly believes she should be the center of attention at all times and may sometimes test the house-rules in an effort to convey that mindset, so a fair yet firm owner is necessary to help Paisley thrive in her role of a good canine citizen! She possesses an average energy level and is up for fun at any given time. She is silly, snuggly, and super smart.

Paisley does not want to be left out of any activities and is a bit jealous when other dogs are getting attention instead of her, so a bossy dog already established in the house-hold would not be a good match for her. She co-exists well and is extremely affectionate with other dogs that are non-dominant. With her people-oriented temperament, she would be most happy in a home that intends to include her in all day-to-day activities!

Could you be the perfect family she is searching for?

Owen ARPH #13729

Owen is a 3yo neutered blue merle male that came to us with 2 other Aussies after their owner experienced life-altering circumstances and could no longer provide for them. He is house-trained, crate-trained, and doing well with leash-training. He is a big boy that came to us overweight, but has been doing very well on his diet and has already lost 5lbs! At times, Owen doesn't realize just how big he is and can be a bit exuberant at first, but once he's had time to adjust and learn the house rules and routine, he does much better!

This is from Owen's foster mom:
"Owen is the biggest teddy bear! And I do mean big! In his foster home, he is working on weight loss in addition to basic manners. While he's just getting used to being in the house, he is no stranger to snuggles. This love bug wants all your attention and love.

Owen is not cat friendly, but he's shown no interest toward indoor song birds in his foster home. Due to his larger frame size, he may not be the most suited for a home with small children, as he might accidentally knock them over.

He's low energy for a young Aussie, and so far low drive for games of fetch or chase. But he loves to throw around a good stuffed animal. He also has a hoarding habit so if you can't find your shoe, you may need to ask Owen where he left it.

He's wary of meeting new dogs and does best with others of low energy. A dog park would be too overwhelming for him. But anywhere he can go to get pets and love and snuggles is where he wants to go!"
